We are on a quest to camp at all of the Arizona State Parks and we wanted a quick getaway from Phx, so chose Picacho Peak. Seeing the campground from our I-10 approach had us a bit concerned but honestly, we couldn't really hear any traffic noise and actually enjoyed watching the car lights at night. The staff was so friendly at check-in, our spot (#B19) was easy to park in and we didn't even unhitch our tow vehicle since we were completely level and wouldn't be needing to drive anywhere. Our campsite was nice and roomy, picnic table & firepit. Being avid bird watchers, we weren't even expecting to see much but had a great birding weekend right from our campsite...saw loggerhead shrikes, rock wrens, say's phoebes...just to mention a few. It was cool. Not sure when we'll go back because we do have about 13 more state parks to visit but we would definitely consider a revisit. We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Travel Trailer.
